MUSIC 101 – The Art of Orchestration
What makes a composer a great orchestrator? Why do some pieces sound so spectacular? In this presentation, filled with musical examples and engaging visual aids, Alan opens the composer’s kit and lays out the inspired tools used by the most celebrated practitioners of the mysterious art of orchestration.
These music appreciation courses are designed for all LA Phil audiences, from those who know very little about classical music and its history, to those who are lifelong listeners. Choose one or both classes, each of which explores a variety of topics illustrated with musical examples from the LA Phil 2017/18 season, plus vibrant visuals and a lively Q&A.
